'Bitten' Premiere: When Does Space's Werewolf Show Air In Canada?


If you've had your fill with all things vampire-related, perhaps it's time to sink your teeth into "Bitten".

The werewolf-drama is making its way to Canada via the Space Channel and set to air on Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. EST. As far as Canadian-werewolf shows go, "Bitten" is the equivalent of pure-grade maple syrup.

Fans of "Smallville" and "Ted' will recognize Toronto-native Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaels, the show's heroine-turned-werewolf after an encounter with a wolf while in New York. As her world is turned upside down, she flees to Toronto in her pursuit of a normal life with her boyfriend Phillip, played by Alberta native Paul Greene.

But things are never normal for werewolves thanks to The Pack, a powerful organized family responsible for monitoring all werewolf activity. Think of them as the Mob of werewolves. Things get hairy for Elena after an all-out wear breaks out between the Muus, a group of rouge werewolves, decide to attack The Pack. You can catch a sneak peek of what to expect in the trailer below

If this sounds like something ripped out of a franchise involving supernatural creatures, that's because it is. "Bitten" is actually based off of "Women of the Otherworld", a fantasy series by Canadian author, Kelley Armstrong. The show will also feature the acting chops of Winnipeg’s Greg Bryk, and B.C.'s Greyston Holt.
